In this activity, students study seismograms from three different seismic stations that recorded the magnitude 9.0 Sumatra earthquake of December 26, 2004. By comparing the arrival times of the P and S waves on each seismogram, they can determine the distance from the epicenter to each station and accurately map its location. Using this information, they also calculate the position of the quake-generated ... Full description.
